The form of the new Depo Zličín metro station will be determined by the competition

The two-phase competition will include not only the form of a surface single-track stop with a side platform. The competition proposal will also include the expansion of the station and the addition of a second platform in connection with a possible extension of route B, which would require continued urban development in the northwest of Prague.

The station is to enable the shortest possible transfer to the metro from the newly built P + R car park in Na Radosti Street with a capacity of up to 600 seats. The distance between the exit from the metro and the nearest entrances to the P + R garages should be only about 30 meters. However, there is already criticism that the capacity of the parking lot at the final metro station should be several times higher.

At the beginning of this year, the Capital Transport Company (DPP) selected the designer of the new station. The contract was won by Sudop Praha and Metroprojekt. The project will also expand the existing metro depot by two halls. The costs have so far been estimated at 1.4 billion crowns. Construction should begin in 2023, and the 62nd Prague Metro Station could be commissioned in 2025.

How will Prague change?

Great changes await Prague in the coming years

According to the Czech Chamber of Architects, the architectural design of the new metro station should also include the adjacent public space, including related roads and landscaping.

The expansion of the depot by two parking halls is needed in the future, given that its existing capacity is already full.

“If we plan to shorten the intervals on line B in the future, we will have to move part of the sets from line A to the Zličín depot. But we first need to build new parking capacity for them in Zličín,” said DPP CEO Petr Witowski. The company also needs new premises because it has a test track in Zličín for testing new cars planned for the planned line D.
